Monye highlighted Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt as a prime candidate to resurrect France as a leading power within the world rugby landscape given his capabilities as a coach.

"He probably does more than anyone else in the squad, so he deserves all the praise he gets".

"It's certainly great fun out there".

Jones will be confident his side can do that after witnessing them dismantle France, racing into a 30-8 interval lead and then preventing their opponents from even gaining a point thereafter.

How to watch Tiger Woods at the Genesis Open on Thursday

"I think the emotions are pretty high at the moment, and we are still a week-and-a-half away from the game".
